Live an authentic culinary experience in Modena. Enter the home of Gianluigi in Modena and enjoy an amazing hands-on cooking class followed by a convivial lunch with him. If Italy ere an home, Modena would be its kitchen. Here, on the flat plains of the slow-flowing Po, lies one of the nation's great gastronomic centers, the creative force behind real balsamic vinegar, giant tortellini-stuffed with tantalizing fillings, sparkling Lambrusco wine and backstreets crammed with some of the best restaurants no one's ever heard of.
For those with bleached taste buds, the city has another equally lauded legacy: cars. The famous Ferrari museum is situated in the nearby village of Maranello and you can enjoy the visit in the morning and meeting your Chef Gianluigi around lunch time! Gianluigi' home is in central Modena. Walking around its backstreets and little alleys is a fascinating experience, off the beaten path. Gianluigi adores cooking and hosting guests. He has refined a menu of Emilia specialties, using products and raw materials from the local market. Get ready to learn some of the secrets of our cuisine and enjoy the meal with your friends and family.
